Manchester City may not have a lot to play for in the coming weeks if Liverpool wrap up the Premier League title quickly, but that won’t stop Pep Guardiola from demanding perfection against Arsenal this week.

City are 22 points behind the rampant Reds in the title race which could be wrapped up within two games of the restart.

However, City are still in the hunt for Champions League glory and will use the Premier League as a testing ground to hone their skills and fitness ahead of the European return.

    Man City v Arsenal team news

    Man City: Guardiola has the luxury of a fully fit squad to choose from.

    Leroy Sane could be set to make his first appearance of the season after returning from a serious knee ligament injury.

    Arsenal: Full-back trio Hector Bellerin, Sead Kolasinac and Kieran Tierney are all fit and ready for the restart following a season blighted by injuries.

    Calum Chambers and Lucas Torreira are the only two players unavailable for the comeback game.

    Our prediction: Man City v Arsenal

    City has the superior quality, though could lack a little motivation with less to play for.

    Arsenal boast inferior quality, but if they approach the game in a full-blooded manner, there’s every chance they could challenge City.

    The game hinges on City’s mentality. If Guardiola can fire up his men to play without fear or complacency, simply just to win regardless of the wider context, they should get the job done.

    Our prediction: Man City 2-1 Arsenal
